BWW Reviews: PETER PAN GOES WRONG, Birmingham Rep Theatre, January 27 2015BWW Reviews: PETER PAN GOES WRONG, Birmingham Rep Theatre, January 27 2015
by Jenny Antill (UK / West End)

(1/28/2015) - Last April I reviewed The Play That Goes Wrong for BroadwayWorldUK during its UK tour prior to its West End run. I enjoyed it immensely and the reaction to the production is clearly widespread as the production company recouped their investment within the first portion of their stint in London. Peter Pan Goes Wrong is the response to their success and is equally, if not more, hilarious than its predecessor.
